Batman V Superman Official Teaser

I’m torn about this teaser. On one hand, I know this is just a teaser and the movie is a year away. They can only reveal, but so much, at this point and time. However, the fan boy inside of me hates this teaser WITH a passion. I wasn’t excited at all. To be completely truthful, I was mostly bored. What I despise most is the tone of the teaser. It’s…

DVD Review of Wild: A Wild Journey that Doesn't Excite

 

Synopsis: A woman takes a 1,100 mile hike down the PCT in order to deal with a personal issue. 

 

 

Wild isn’t as wild as the title suggests. It’s rather more mundane. Based on a memoir by Cheryl Strayed, who experienced the events depicted in the movie. I could see how this was worth being made into a book, tho…
